The GOP Should Be in Bed: They Are Suffering with Benghazi Fever

Dr. Frankenstein Would be My First Guess and the GOP's Best Hope
(for him to create more angry white guys)

A bit of background: For six years now, the Republicans have struggled to make a[any] scandal stick to President Obama. One by one, the controversies, if we can honestly call them that, possessing shorthand names like Solyndra, Benghazi, the IRS, and Fast and Furious, and replay of Benghazi (see below) have all hit a “Benghazi fever” pitch, and then faded away, except for Benghazi, which they hope to keep alive despite their own committees saying there is no “there, there.” They just cannot drop it and move on.  GOP hopes Obama heath care woes have staying power | from Business & Technology | The Seattle Times (from here).

Seemingly the only tool the GOP ever uses to measure their own “leadership skills” in Congress.

The latest and most-disgusting yet from Media Matters:

On November 21, the Republican-led House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released the findings of its investigation into the September 2012 attacks on two U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, debunking many right-wing media myths about the attacks. 

Despite the fact that this is just the latest of several reports that clear Obama administration officials of any wrongdoing,  Then what does Speaker Boehner do? he reappoints Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to lead a special committee in furtherance of the right-wing hoax. Looking for Zebras in the forest, eh, Mr. Boehner? Guess what - they do not reside there. 

The GOP always takes pride in saying “We serve the American people.” Not this way they don't. They are out for Obama's blood or head and along the way, to gather as many political points as possible.

They are in a word, pathetic and this latest shows just how much – hell, they can't even trust their own committees to tell the truth. So, dig, dig, dig, drip, drip, drip and milk that baby for all it’s worth – but in the end, it's not worth very much. I am also pretty sure the Grand Old Party has just about worn out their welcome across mainstream America. Their days are numbered that is unless Sen. Graham cranks up old Dr. F and together they sing in unison: “It's alive, it's alive.”
